Straight from the Apple Pie Trail in The Blue Mountains, these apples are the star ingredient for one of life’s best comfort foods, Apple Crisp. The humble apple is often overlooked when we talk about Super Foods but in actual fact it lives up well to the old adage ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’. Apples contain vitamin C, fiber and an important substance called glucaric acid. Glucaric acid enhances the Phase II process of liver detoxification called glucuronidation. Glucuronidation is the detoxification pathway in which hormones, foreign substances and toxic chemicals, especially pesticides, are made harmless and are eliminated.
There is nothing fancy about this recipe. It’s just a few good ingredients coming together to make a great dessert.
